Coalition and Labor Senate leaders sharply rebuke One Nation leader over her stunt and accuse her of ridiculing Muslims

The leader of Australia’s rightwing One Nation party has been rebuked by the Turnbull government for entering the Senate chamber wearing a black burqa.

But Hanson was rebuked sharply for her behaviour.
